How does the process occur?

  • The insolvency procedure of a natural person consists consecutively of the bankruptcy procedure and clearing of liabilities.

    Thus, we receive the desired result – all liabilities are cleared. The regulatory enactments provide that not all liabilities, for instance criminal punishments and administrative fines, may be cleared by initiating the insolvency procedure.

  • Within the framework of the procedure of clearing of liabilities, a fixed share of the debtor’s income is diverted for the satisfaction of creditors’ claims and, after the expiry of the period of the clearing of liabilities, the liabilities that have not been settled within this period shall be cleared.

  • All property of the debtor is sold within the bankruptcy procedure and the funds raised from the sales of property are diverted for the settling of creditors’ claims, except for the property that the debt recovery may not be directed against in accordance with the provisions of the Civil Procedure Law.
